Gerald is active in the legal community as a long time board member of the Minnesota Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, and as a fellow in the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.  He is the family law columnist for the MN Association for Justice Magazine, and has served as an ethics investigator for the Hennepin County Ethics Committee.  He maintains the Minnesota Divorce and Family Law Blog, which we believe was the first family law blog in the state of Minnesota.  Gerald writes all the content for our blog, so you will find unique original material you will not find anywhere else.
